How bad would the second term have been for rioting?

The rioters may have felt safe that their jobs could not be taken from them during Trump because it was harder for people to enter the country.

The rioters would realize there were still penalties and they were going to let some immigrants enter, just not so many, so you could still lose your job.

Maybe liberal big city mayors were not intent on allowing Trump's border control plan to work by not cooperating with federal or state offers of assistance, so all their little coalitions and political machines did not break down.

    Hard to predict with the house and senate gone to the dark side.

    I do know our border would not be the unmitigated disaster it is now.

    I am assuming employers are having a hard time finding help but maybe if they stuck with it and did not budge it would improve once everyone got used to the new normal.

    I am seeing many more HELP WANTED signs in businesses now. It is all the folks getting extended unemployment with the added largess from the Feds that keep them cozy and unwilling to work. I got a notification that the unemployment I got last March-April is now no longer taxable. The feds will refund the taxes I paid on it. Almost 2 trillion spent and I will get back a few shekels out of the deal. Whoopee, yea right.

    The D's want a disaser at the border so they can open the flood gates. Look who they are sending to fix it! The same commie who said ICE was the KKK.

    Trump would have kept the Tax cuts and forced Iran to either accept his terms or else. In any case the last round of stimulus might have gone more to infrastructure instead of Union pay stops on bad pension investments and with less illegal immigration giveaways when they get here.

    Big story this time around is stagflation with the increase debt and phony bond market with the Federal Reserve monetizing debt and then hiding it so they can make US think the dollar is sound and stable,which it is not.It's the biggest bubble out there along with millions of more Hispanics migrating to The USA to escape poverty. Past dreamers with present and future interlopers do add up. Relive it or not.

    We get it. You hate Trump and your brain is chock full of lead. Trump is gone buba, time to move on.

    There is no connection between the two clauses in your question.

    A second Trump administration would more than likely be as bad as or as good as the first, depending upon in which echo chamber one resides.

    Freedom and a submissive populace cannot co-exist.

    I'm talking about the rioting. It was hard to fire people if they got minor offenses because there was no one available to take their place.

    Before 2017 it was because BHO was in office. After that, the rioting seemed to get kind of worse although it could be because a lot of people are home with nothing to do because of Covid.

    Whether or not they'll ever tell us, I suspect liberals hated Trump and had sanctuary cities because some people from the inner city really are a little bit less than optimal as job candidates and the liberals live in big cities where part of their staff has to be from the distressed school districts and high crime areas.

    They probably don't mind cooperating with hiring quotas, but that was probably easier when they had more alternatives to the truly distressed candidates.

    The ability to easily hire someone else would make many people try harder.

    You will see that second term tighten your tin foil!

    I was looking forward to a giant game of "Patriots vs non-citizens" as the solution to border jumpers.
